Automating the implementation of an equilibrium profile model for glacier reconstruction and Equilibrium Line Altitude calculation in a GIS environment

Abstract

Reconstruction of glacier equilibrium line altitudes (ELAs) associated with advance stages of former ice masses is widely used as a tool for palaeoclimatic studies. This requires an accurate reconstruction of palaeo-glacier surface hypsometry, based on geomorphological evidence. Classically, the approach used to define ice-surface elevations follows the… (More)
